This is never a good thing. According to a new report from Wrestling Inc., this week’s episode of Raw garnered the lowest ratings in the history of the show’s 25 years on the air.
This week’s show drew 2.194 million viewers, which is down from last week’s 2.285 million viewers. The first hour drew 2.347 million viewers (last week’s hour 1 – 2.262 million), the second hour drew 2.186 million viewers (last week’s hour 2 – 2.399 million) and the final hour drew 2.048 million viewers (last week’s hour 3 – 2.196 million).
This week’s second and third hour were the lowest ever second and third hours in the history of Raw.
Baron Corbin vs. Seth Rollins in a TLC match for the Intercontinental Championship headlined this week’s show. You can see a clip from that match below:
From the report:
RAW was #9 for the night in viewership on cable, for the third week in a row, behind the NFL’s Monday Night Football, Monday Night Kickoff, SportsCenter at midnight, Rachel Maddow Show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Last Word, Hannity and The Five. RAW was #5 in the 18-49 demographic this week, behind the NFL, Monday Night Kickoff, SportsCenter and Love & Hip-Hop.
I honestly am not surprised by this one bit. Raw has been absolutely abysmal the last few weeks, and the shows that have been produced have been complete garbage. I don’t know if WWE is just trolling us for an angle against Baron Corbin, but if no one is watching, what difference does it make?
